lawyer said his wife, suzanne mubarak called him and he was rushing to the hospital. i, myself, thought it might be serious. i started calling around and most people in egypt were already writing it off, only because just last month, the same lawyer had said that president mubarak had cancer, which turned out to be false. and sure enough, about an hour after the lawyer's initial statement or diagnosis, there was a doctor from the hospital on state television saying nothing of the kind. mubarak suffered from a small dizzy spell and he was doing fine. >> and so it begs the question, why? in the past when he was the president, his health was a closely guarded state secret, rumors he was leaving the country and all that. is there reason to doubt the state tv reports? who do we believe? >> you're right. state tv is certainly not gold in terms of its accuracy. but in this case, the doctors sounded pretty darn convincing.
